Presuming that most companies started their initial expansion through organic growth, what are some of the common drivers or thoughts that kick in such that companies switch their attention to source for potential M&A opportunities?
Majority of corporations will seek M&As in order to gain a strategic advantage. The next big reason would to create a vertical or horizontal integration of the company. Finally, a company that has exhibited considerable organic growth, would want to invest its excess earnings in inorganic growth.
To add to the above comments, I have seen acquisition deals of oversees companies to relocate to to our country in an attempt to localize different product & services and contribute to the local economy. so far no failures.
